I've been involved with a really fun project called "PhotoSWAP 2011" ( The basic idea is you get paired up with another photographer somewhere in the world, take a roll of film (YES FILM!) either a roll or a disposable camera and send it to that partner UNDEVELOPED. They then take said film and get it developed and post it on their blog or flickr for all the world to see and be amazed. I've been paired with Inessa in California. I've sent Inessa my film and she sent me hers. Here is a link to her work as well as the photoSWAP blog to see other projects if you are so intrigued.

I have been shooting film since I was 10 years old. I was given a Canon AE-1 Program for my first trip to England and Scotland. I've been hooked every since. I bought my first digital camera about 8 years ago and it's so quick and easy that the film sort of fell by the wayside. This project brought it back around for me. I can't wait to see my images. I'll be sure to post when they are up. Inessa is currently traveling in Europe so it may be a little while. In the meantime, take a look at some of the other work. It is all quite inspiring! Thanks for the kick in the pants to get back to my first love... black and white film.
